Introducing our exquisite Afghani rug with an erased Mamluk design! This transitional style rug showcases a denim background adorned with a rust border, creating a stunning visual contrast. Crafted using traditional techniques, this rug is a testament to the skill and craftsmanship of ethnic Turkmen weavers, with a majority hailing from the Esari Subtribe.

To ensure the utmost quality, the wool used in this rug is sourced exclusively from sheep in the Ghazni Province of South East Afghanistan. The mountainous terrain in this region naturally produces longer staple, oily, and higher quality wool, ideal for carpet weaving. This raw Ghazni wool is then brought to the western side of Afghanistan, particularly Herat, where it undergoes the intricate process of hand carting and hand spinning into carpet yarn.

Using asymmetrical "Persian" knotting techniques, skilled weavers employ their expertise on traditional floor looms in their own homes or cottage industries. This rug features a cotton warp and weft, with a wool pile that is double wefted and heavily packed, creating a durable and long-lasting masterpiece. The centuries-old dyeing tradition ensures that all colors are derived from natural dyes, resulting in a vibrant and authentic aesthetic.

The mesmerizing blue shade in this rug is achieved through the use of natural indigo dye. Derived from the leaves of the indigo plant, this dye has a rich history dating back thousands of years and has been widely utilized in various cultures worldwide for its ability to produce captivating blue hues.

With a knot count of 162 knots per square inch, every inch of this rug showcases the meticulous handiwork of skilled artisans. Based on this knot count, we have determined that this rug features an impressive 2,387,908 individually hand-tied knots in total.

Discover the allure of this Afghani rug and bring the beauty of eras past into your home.
